National Philanthropy Day Luncheon & Awards Cancelled for 2020

For decades, Association of Fundraising Professionals of Nebraska members have celebrated our favorite philanthropists by honoring them at National Philanthropy Day each November. 

The AFP Nebraska Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 National Philanthropy Day luncheon and awards. Our honorees are typically in the age range that is considered high risk for COVID-19 and the last thing we want to do is risk exposing them or each other. Additionally, as you all know too well, planning an event in person is practically impossible right now and online events bear their own challenges, especially with an all-volunteer board.

It is our intention to celebrate National Philanthropy Day in person in 2021 and potentially allow for more honorees in each category to make up for the lost year.
